I am officially a Credentialed Clinical Instructor, as sanctioned by the American Physical Therapy Association.
I know, right?
After two full days of classroom instruction, and six different “Festivals of Knowledge” (read: tests), I passed the course and am now blessed to take student PTs and mold and shape them as part of their college educations. This couldn’t come at a better time, as I’ve already had 7 students to date – which was the second highest tally in my class of 30 practicing clinicians. One lady had had 10 students.
The best part is the shiny little diamond-shaped pin I received upon successful completion.
